The Paradise Syndrome – Episode 59

This week, Rachel and Chris have reservations about the very strange aspects (and political correctness) of this week’s episode, The Paradise Syndrome.

Special thanks to Chad Fifer for our theme tune and to Greig Johnson for his vocal stylings!

Next episode: And the Children Shall Lead!

  1. This episode leaves cosplay behind for full on LARPING!
    Kirok does NOT break character. Full Nordic points to K.

    That was a really big Obelisk Prop. I wonder where it ended up.

  2. Unfortunately this is not the worst example of Star Trek’s representations of race. Whilst we’ll see them representing Native American culture again somewhat clumsily (in TNG’s “Journey’s End” which tries to addresses forced resettlement), for me the nadir of race representation in Trek has to be TNG’s “Code of Honor”. It’s telling that the first Google result that comes up if you type ‘Star Trek Racist’ is the Wikipedia entry for “Code of Honor”!
